Joe Crowley challenges four young people to use modern technological tricks to unearth clues about the unsung historical heroes who lived, worked and often made major discoveries in their home town.
From Sir George Cayley, who toiled in his Scarborough workshop making human flight possible, to Jutland Jack, the teenage war hero buried in an east London cemetery, the History Hunters investigate exciting and surprising historical facts. Why was a brilliant woman scientist almost written out of one of the biggest scientific discoveries of the 20th century? What connects the humble phone box and a colossal cathedral? History Hunt shows how inquisitive children can piece together clues revealing fascinating historical stories - right on their own doorstep.
